The Pearson has twice the volume of the Alberg,better for the longhaul.I almost bought one in Mex. a few years back.

You are kidding right? These boats are completely different and if you can not chose among them you need to decide what type of boat YOU want!

PS - I would take the P-424 but thats me.

Re: pearson 424 vs alberg 37

Well, I'm partial to the A37, but then again, I'm picking up mine on Thursday :-)

I agree that they are totally different, but the A37 is more in line with what I need.

I'll take the Pearson hands down unless you are planning to circumnavigate non-stop and never leave the cockpit.

I liked my P424 but never took it around the world.

The OP's question is impossible to answer given the limited information provided.

I'm thinking a troll.

Re: pearson 424 vs alberg 37

I think both look OK. I think the Pearson has more living space.
